You need the Advanced Teletext Software ROM, which I've got in my
archive. There's also an additional extension ROM. It does neat
things like autotuning, and is reputedly rather superior to the Acorn
Teletext Adaptor, though not having ever owned a Morley one, I wouldn't
really know. Ther'es also some inofrmation on it on The BBC Lives!
